Danny McBride gave fans four seasons of joy with “Eastbound & Down” before wrapping the show up, but the good news for devotees of his irreverent brand of comedy is that he’s back with a new series.
Co-starring Walton Goggins, Kimberly Hébert Gregory, Georgia King, Busy Philipps, Shea Whigham and Sheaun McKinney, “Vice Principals” is a dark comedy about two VPs at a school who are locked in a battle to become principal. McBride and Jody Hill created the series, with Hill and David Gordon Green sharing directing duties. The trio are longtime pals, having worked on ‘Eastbound.’
Two seasons comprised of eighteen episodes are on the way, kicking off this July. But audiences at SXSW will get a sneak peek at “Vice Principals,” which will debut at the fest. Watch below.
